Hope Julia isn't eavesdropping here.
jamie59 17th May 2015, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

So its Julia useful? Is that it or is she scarred to say love?
Love the tie to Luna Star.
Sheela 18th May 2015, 9:44 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure she's brave enough to say love, she was simply stating facts that when they met, Julia was simply .. the easy way in.
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 11:05 AM edit delete reply

Agreed, Sheela I think that was how it started. From what we've already seen though, I would definitely say it is no longer simply the easy path. In fact with the feelings Miraiko and Julia have for one another it has made it one of the HARDEST paths. The one with the biggest reward for the both of them, if they can pull it off.

And so much more to lose if they fail.

While we don't know the full story of the Luna Star one thing is clear to me. If it wasn't for Galina Kotko, there would not be much left of humanity. I'm getting the feeling that she gave mankind a chance to survive into the future. How remains to be seen.

You really need to read 'LunaStar.'
mjkj 17th May 2015, 11:34 PM edit delete reply

Wow, so much information...

*lol* @alt text, but so true...

PS: does he know how to equip that armor? there is an aweful lot of rustling going on...

anonymous coward 18th May 2015, 12:04 AM edit delete reply
Most armour has much more exacting wear instructions than loose clothing because it involves multiple layers and a mixture of rigid, semi-rigid and flexible parts in contrast to normal clothing. If there's enough layers involved there might be a dang HV/AC unit at work that needs system tests instead of just passive gaps in the weave for sweat/evaporation.
Also, this is just a guess but perhaps for stealth's sake he's dressing up as one of those red-suited stormtroopers.
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 6:09 AM edit delete reply

I imagine Rose took Kyle's familiarity (or total lack of) into what is given to him, anonymous. I would think from now on, he shouldn't need too much armor. It is Kyle though, so I guess we'll wait and see.
Timotheus 17th May 2015, 11:43 PM edit delete reply

It's stealth armor. It will look like an anime maid dress.
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 7:14 AM edit delete reply

LOL Tim. I totally could see Rose doing that to Kyle, Tim. "Mess up MY plans, boy. Get the maid's outfit!"
Sheela 18th May 2015, 9:45 AM edit delete reply

Now I am hoping for a maid outfit on Kyle. >_<
DLKmusic 18th May 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

what about a sailor moon/Kagome style Schoolgirl uniform?
Kitty 18th May 2015, 6:59 PM edit delete reply
I'd be happy if we got to see him putting it on. ;)
Pirtnac 18th May 2015, 1:08 AM edit delete reply
Nice little touch with his chest. The wounds look like they're still healing while they talk. Started off as angry red holes 3 pages ago, and now they're scars with.... crop circles around them as the nanites move around.
KarToon12 18th May 2015, 6:39 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure there's been other references to the spin off comic here before, but I think this might be the first direct Luna Star mentioning (as it actually saying its name).
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 7:19 AM edit delete reply

Luna Star was mentioned on the page where CeCi was watching Dari. It was some news feed about the Luna Star being opened to the public again.

Edit: Now that I'm not on the stupid smart phone, I looked up the page - Ghosts of the past from 8 September 2014.

"Duty is heavier than a mountain; death, lighter than a feather."

You have such a rich story here, and I'm really only now beginning to appreciate the skill with which the layers have been woven.
DLKmusic 18th May 2015, 12:06 PM edit delete reply

I'm a little suprised that Miriako is Kiku's decendant, although I have no idea why!
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 2:53 PM edit delete reply

I'm surprised you are surprised, DLK. On the page Bearer of good news from 5 March 2014 she gives her name as Miraiko Yukimura. Which catt pointed out in the comments might make her Kiku's descendant. Which wasn't confirmed or denied by the evil duo at the time (though I think CentComm hinted at it).

Now we have confirmation. So give catt a gold star. :-)

DLKmusic 18th May 2015, 4:50 PM edit delete reply

A: I forgot about that,
B: I'm surprised that I'm surprised too!

(gives Catt a gold star)
Rashala 18th May 2015, 2:28 PM edit delete reply

all I gotta say is...when this is all over......If rose breaks up Mirako and Julia... I am going to make it my mission in life to Keep her three assistants So drunk she never gets a moments rest!
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 3:07 PM edit delete reply

I'm not sure CentComm is going to let both of them SURVIVE, Rash. So what will you do to HER?!?
DLKmusic 18th May 2015, 4:53 PM edit delete reply

I gotta agree with Stormwind here, Rash. let's worry about both of them surviving before we get mad at Rose breaking them up.

Either way we'll be mad, but it's always a good idea to know WHAT and WHO you are mad at first!
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 7:00 PM edit delete reply

Actually, I kind of doubt that Rose is going to break up the relationship for Julia and Miraiko. She gave Miraiko permission to attempt to recruit Julia, lay her cards on the table. So I kind of take that as Rose APPROVING of the relationship.
Rashala 19th May 2015, 2:17 PM edit delete reply

*Evil grin To stormwind* Ooooh I already have plans for CEntcomm too!!! Lets just say involves TEdee...some eggs and Misrouted deliveries
CptKerion 18th May 2015, 6:05 PM edit delete reply
Right before they kill Decimus they should cover Kyle in flour then have him walk into the room and say "oooo I am the ghost of Kyle McFuckface." with his arms stretched straight out in front of him and wiggling his fingers.

Best case scenario? Decimus dies with turd in his pants.
Worst case scenarion? Kyle gets another 3 ripper rounds to the chest.
If you ask me it's win-win.
Stormwind13 18th May 2015, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

You are being MEAN to poor Kyle, CptK.
CptKerion 18th May 2015, 7:50 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, true.
If we ever find out how he acts in 20 years we'll determine whether or not he deserves it.

Although I will say, if the nanites are that good, he'll live unless the blood loss gets him.
Timotheus 18th May 2015, 8:04 PM edit delete reply

As long as the plug seals keep him inflated he'll be fine.
CptKerion 18th May 2015, 8:16 PM edit delete reply
I may have overlooked the possibility of Decimus shooting him in the head as is standard procedure for Zombies.
Hornet 19th May 2015, 5:44 AM edit delete reply
When cosplaying Kyle can now truthfully say he's a member of House Harkonnen!
Stormwind13 19th May 2015, 9:51 AM edit delete reply

I cosplay as an adult, Hornet. :-D
velvetsanity 19th May 2015, 7:59 PM edit delete reply

*pays no attention to the vaguely recognized Dune reference and instead jumps on the much-more-obvious-to-her Hellsing reference* are you saying he's related to the spirit of Ceras' 30mm anti-Freak cannon?
Lukkai 19th May 2015, 8:11 PM edit delete reply

And now you know why I nearly fell down laughing the first time her gun was named on the show. (Yeah, I saw the first anime series before I read the manga.)
velvetsanity 19th May 2015, 11:53 PM edit delete reply

Which is scariest? Her Harkonnen, Joshua and Jackal (Alucard's guns), Walter's dental floss, Anderson's bayonets, or simply getting on Sir Integra's bad side? :D
WitUnderPressure 22nd May 2015, 1:04 PM edit delete reply

If it makes you feel any better, Decimus probably appreciates your abilities as a shooting target.
antrik 13th Oct 2016, 3:18 AM edit delete reply
And here's another reminder why Kyle is such a hateable character: "I'm not so sure I care about 'everyone'." Way to go, mister ego.
